Calling Javascript fuctions from Menu system

I'm trying to invoke a javascript function 'launch' in another frame from a menu item as follows-

"XXX","javascript:launch(200,200,'eeeek.htm') target=ZZ",,,2,

The arguments 200,200, get passed OK, but the literal in single-quotes somehow does not get passed properly to my 'LAUNCH' function in frame ZZ.
I've tried escaping the quotes with a backslash; even that doesn't work.

Can this be done at all in the Milonix menu, or would I have to set the literal in the called function in frame ZZ?
Might be simpler to do.
Guess I was just trying to bury as much as I possibly could in the Milonic .js... ;-)

And don't tell me not to use frames! ;-)

Don't use frames :D

No seriously - have you tried escaping double quotes. The menu in it's current state has issues with either single or escaped single quotes.

Double escaped quotes usually work fine.

the escaped dble-quotes that you suggested seemed to do the trick!
